Subject [jira] Closed: (DIREVE-215) Wrong error messages for some operations
Date Sat, 27 Aug 2005 17:26:05 GMT
     [ ]
Stefan Zoerner closed DIREVE-215:

With the application of the patch some time ago (thank you, Alex), the error message for the
different actions (add, delete, ...) now reflect the correct operation. I have retested the
behaviour. High time to close the issue.

> If a client tries to remove an entry, and the deletion fails because the entry is not
a leaf (error code 66), the LDAP message is wrong.
> Status code and Exception type within the server are correct (as detected by the corresponding
test case). But the message text itself contains the words "failed to add entry". This information
is sent to the client, which may display it, e.g.
>     * JNDI includes it during creation of appropriate Exception (com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtx.mapErrorCode(66,
"failed to add entry ...").
>     * Command line tools like ldapmodify display it on the console.
> Example: If the following LDIF is applied to ApacheDS
> ---
> # create entry
> dn: ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> changetype: add
> ou: noLeaf
> objectclass: top
> objectclass: organizationalUnit
> # create entry below the first
> dn: ou=leaf,ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> changetype: add
> ou: leaf
> objectclass: top
> objectclass: organizationalUnit
> # delete subtree
> dn: ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> changetype: delete
> ---
> it goes
> $ ldapmodify -h magritte -p 10389 -D uid=admin,ou=system -w **** -f deleteSubtree.ldif
> adding new entry ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> adding new entry ou=leaf,ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> deleting entry ou=noLeaf,ou=system
> ldap_delete: Operation not allowed on nonleaf
> ldap_delete: additional info: failed to add entry ou=noLeaf,ou=system:
> ... (very long Stack trace deleted) ...
> $
> I modified the error message within class org.apache.ldap.server.protocol.DeleteHandler
to "failed to delete entry ..." (attached), although I would prefer a more detailed message
(like "Not Allowed On Non-leaf", as Sun Directory does). But this is not possible at that
general place without an ugly switch or so.
> The same "defect" (probably a cut/copy/paste of error message from AddHandler) is present
in CompareHandler, ModifyDnHandler, and ModifyHandler.
> I would also suggest not to send the complete stack trace back to the client. I have
removed it in the attached version of the DeleteHandler and had a better command line experience
with ApacheDS (the stack traces should go in a server log only from my point of view). This
applies to other handlers (e.g. Add) as well.
